Zilog Announces New ZNEO32! 32-bit Microcontroller Family

Zilog®, an IXYS Company (NASDAQ: “IXYS”), focusing on application specific solutions with microcontrollers (MCUs), today introduced its ZNEO32! family of 32-bit Cortex M3 microcontrollers, thereby expanding its line of microcontroller products.

The new Cortex M3 microcontrollers are special-purpose MCUs for first class motor applications that offer cost effective, high performance 32-bit computing capabilities. This family of MCUs provides 3-phase PWM generator units which are suitable for inverter motor drive systems. Most of the MCUs within the ZNEO32! family offer two built-in channels for the generators to control two individual inverter motors simultaneously. They have up to three 12-bit high speed ADC units with 16-channel analog multiplexed inputs to gather information from the motor; additionally, some of these MCUs include both operational amplifiers and comparators.

The ZNEO32! family of products includes MCUs that are well suited for a variety of applications that require highly deterministic real-time applications, automotive systems, industrial control systems, wireless networking and sensors, and low power applications.

“Zilog has created special motor control technologies for advanced motor control needs that now complement this 32-bit series of Cortex M3 MCUs. As part of the World of IXYS of power and mixed signal ICs, we offer the complete line of products to support our worldwide customers, especially in the industrial, medical, power management, consumer, power management and IoT markets,” remarked Steve Darrough, Zilog’s VP of Marketing.

Key Features:
  •     High performance, low power Cortex-M3 Core, operating at up to 80 MHz
  •     Up to 384 KB flash memory options
  •     Up to 16 KB SRAM options
  •     Up to two 3-phase motor PWM with ADC triggering function
  •     Up to three 16-channel 1.5 Msps high-speed ADC with burst conversion function

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
